Promoting Trust, Quality, & Value for a Better Tomorrow
The Solution: Helping IHCC Improve Hearing Care in Canada
At Independent Hearing Clinics of Canada (IHCC) we have a solution for addressing certain challenges within the Canadian hearing aid industry. We hope our efforts will result in improved trust, quality, and value for hearing aid consumers across Canada, and you can help. If you share our vision of a better tomorrow and believe change is possible, please continue reading to learn how you can participate.
What is IHCC Doing Right Now?
IHCC has identified close to 150 independent hearing aid clinics across Canada. We encourage hearing aid clinics to continue to integrate proven best practices and ethical standards into their day-to-day operations. These clinics share our values of trust, independence, transparency, objectivity, fair pricing, and quality-focused services.
Manufacturer owned companies and other corporate interests are taking over the hearing aid industry. By offering independent clinics an alternative strategic path, rather than accepting corporate takeover or sacrificing quality to reduce costs, we help them thrive and keep high quality services alive and well for those with hearing loss in the Canadian marketplace.
